Blue-winged Olives

Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

This one seems to lead to Couplet 35 of the Key to Genera of Perlodidae Nymphs and the genus Isoperla, but I'm skeptical that's correct based on the general look. I need to get it under the microscope to review several choices in the key, and it'll probably end up a different Perlodidae.
27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

the photos on this forum are really neat, so there is a wealth of experience to answer my question:

how do you get the fish to lie so still next the reel on the grass or on the rocks? it's a wonderfully effective pose.

i have to snap mine in the MeasureNet because otherwise they are away like greased lightening. even then all too many photos are ruined when the fish wiggles, like this prize.
